Rhakotis is the online magazine for all things to do with Greco-Roman Egypt and beyond.
Rhakotis is the first place to go for information, reviews of exhibitions, new books and films, and discussion on the legacy of Greco-Roman Egypt. It examines both the history and the enduring influence of Greco-Roman Egypt in all it many ways. We are interested in the art history and wider politics of this legacy.
